CFP: "Capitalism & Socialism," New Harmony, Indiana

New Harmony, Indiana–home of well-known communalist experiments–will host a conference on “Capitalism & Socialism: Utopia, Globalization, and Revolution” on November 6-8, 2014. The conference coincides with the bicentennial of New Harmony’s founding by German Harmonists in 1814. New Harmony is probably best known as the site of industrialist Robert Owen’s experiment in communal living in 1825.  “Capitalism & Socialism” is a multidisciplinary conference that welcomes presenters from economics, history, political science, and sociology, as well as the humanities; both panels and individual papers may be proposed on topics related to capitalism and socialism, past and present. Proposals are due by May 26, 2014. For more details and submission forms, please see the conference website. Questions may be addressed to Casey Harison, Director of Communal Studies, University of Southern Indiana, charison@usi.edu
